IT’S ABOUT TIME: MADONNA’S KABBALAH CENTER IS BEING INVESTIGATED BY IRS

This is turning out to be a good week for justice. First, the killing of Osama Bin Laden, and now the Kabbalah Center (which has tax-exempt status like that other cult, Scientology) is being investigated in a tax evasion probe! Among other things they’re looking for evidence to prove that money donated to Madonna’s charities went into the Berg family’s pockets (they run the Kabbalah center.) According to the Los Angeles Times, a former financial officer at the center claims he was fired for pointing out instances of income tax fraud at the center which owns 200 million dollars worth of UNTAXED property along with a 60 million dollar investment fund. The Bergs claim they get no income from the center, but are given free room and board. (A simple little house in Beverly Hills!) The Bergs were also sued by an heiress earlier this year who claims they defrauded her out of millions of dollars. Her lawyer predicted that “any IRS review will result in a revocation of their nonprofit status and criminal prosecution of the family.” Madonna’s connection remains to be seen. Maybe it’s time to take off that red string bracelet. (M’s spokesperson declined to comment.)

    I’ve been hearing that Madonna is going to ‘distance’ herself from the Kaballah Centre. Bit late for that! She’s made a song and dance about Kaballlah for years and basically put the Centre on the map. So much for her being a great business woman. The whole thing stinks.

    I read she had a falling out with Kabbalah. If it’s proven that money ear marked for her charities ended up in the Berg family pockets instead, that should insure the falling out is permanent if it isn’t already.

    Charities are just piggy banks nothing gets done or cured.

    Ha! About time.

    The Berg’s “bookkeeping” and libertine milking of their cash cow (that would be Madonna) is the reason she was forced to settle quickly with Guy in their divorce.

    The Kabal certainly didn’t want the authortities sniffing around their operation then—nor will they now.

    SHRIEKS of “anti-semitism!” coming in 3…2…

    Nothing to see here folks, but 40 dollar bottles of Kabbalah water and 20 dollar pieces of red string! :)

    I’ll call it ‘a good week for justice’ if they go after scientolo xenu crown.

    Reta, I hope you heal up perfectly and soon.

    The suffering where I am is the 100-year flood that has wiped out many homes and businesses, and snakes and critters are getting in. This is happening to the poor and innocent mostly. It’s been on the national news, but the binLaden episode has taken up most of the news time. So my point is, the Kabbalah and Scientology fools with all their crazy filth cult lies should go jump in the Mississippi River. They will reap a worse fate than this someday……guaranteed.

    How can people be so foolish!! I just really don’t understand these, so called religions, that take your money and place tight restrictions on your life. Jehovah’s Witnesses fall into this category as well.

    If this is true, Madonna should be ashamed of herself. She definately has influence over people and I am quite certain she has intoduced many lambs to the slaughter.

    This is probably just the tip of the iceberg.

    I wonder how much money this Jewish organization funnels into Israel to build illegal settlements and to slaughter Palestinian Women and Children. I bet Natalie Portman knows.

    A list of the last names of the IRS people involved will be an indicator of how far this “investigation” will go.

    True and the foundation scam put across by most of the stars should be investigated. It is just a way to put family on the payroll at high salaries. J Lo’s foundation is a very good example of this, but not the only one.

    Next up, investigation of those weirdos who practice Scientology. No wrongdoing there, no sir!

    no pmsto, it’s how much money does the united states funnel to Israel so the jews can lie, steal, promote racism, and kill americans and muslims for their for their made up religion. Fuck those pigs.

    F you racist. Burn in hell together with your nickname and your muslim brothers who stone women and behead innocents.

    The old “anti-semite” canard has lost its teeth. Israel is a racist Apartheid state where rabbis openly state that “goyim” (cattle) exist only to serve Jews, who are over 90% not even descended from the land the great real estate agent supposedly gave them. Give it a rest.

    There will be no cries of antisemitism, because Jews do not recognize “the cult on Robertson” (as that place is know to actual Jews)as having any validity. Those people are not Kabbalists, they are greedy whores selling out their traditions for cash and I think I speak for all thinking humans when I say I hope they go down. Now, when will they get to Scientology?

    Couldn’t have said it better myself, hell0—

    Thank you.

    Alpha: Your invective is as telling as it is ineffectual.

    You seem to be a bit behind the curve; don’t you know that many of your fellow citizens are finally waking up to the truth?

    Having said that…

    The problem with the “investigating Kababs” (or Scientology, for that matter) scenario is that the entire foundation upon which tax collection has been based is corrupt beyond all redemption.

    The US Tax Code that governs the lives of ALL Americans is 70,000 pages long.

    Chock full with more loopholes, exemptions and coverage for fraud than you can imagine.

    Kababs REAL problem? Not enough muscle (lobbyists, etc.) in DC—but just wait.

    Once they start greasing the wheels with some of Madonna’s cash, the Bergs will be free to continue their practice.

    (Side note: Can’t think of anyone more deserving than the Material Girl to be taken to the cleaners by a bunch of crooks.)

    The jews dont deserve the special pass they receive and the average muslim isn’t a terrorist or a wife stoner. Its ashamed that church and state are becoming too mingled.

    Thank you Indy for you kind thoughts, I am trying to heal as fast as I can but this is getting old.

    I see the racism is still rampant and in full bloom here. Why can’t we all just let each other alone? I do believe NO “church” should be tax exempt.

    Seems the tiny one has a penchant for picking wives 4 or 5 inches taller than he is. And for sure he is nuts, just look in his eyes and hear TMZ play that maniacal laugh of his. He apparently figured he could change Katie from Catholic to Scientologist. When Katie gets tired of it, maybe Nicole can give her some tips on how to get the hell out of hell.

    This should have been under Katie Holmes section

    ALWAY GIVE THE IRS THERE MONEY AND THE LONGER YOU KEEP THEM WAITING THE MORE THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE YOU AND HOPE HE GETS IT STRAIGHTEN OUT SOON.
